Responding to Roald Dahl's The Witches

We read the witches, thought about the characters, wrote interview questions for a Witchophile (someone who studies witches) and created these interview using iPad video and iMovie editing.

Here I was right  next to the fejoa  tree ('s)  I went left and right thinking "should I eat them or not..."  I grasped the branch.  One fegoa

Guy Fawkes by Jessika

It was 1605.  Guy Fawkes was trying to blow up the House of Lords (Robert Catsbey planned that idea).  But King James the first thought something was going on with Guy Fawkes and his little gang (he was sent a letter).

Because of that letter, he thought that he would send him men out and search for the gun powder plots, and the gun powder (36 barrels of gun powder).

Guy Fawkes was planning with Robert Catesby about blowing up everybody in the country, but then the king sent his men out to find Guy Fawkes and Robert Catesby, "MEN!  I am sending you to go and find Guy Fawkes and Robert Catesby."  The King yelled to his men.

So they went searching and found them and showed both guilty men to the King.

They tied Guy Fawkes up and burned him and Robert was killed.

The End

The Sinister Plot by Josh and Daniel

"Mwahahahahaha!" laughed Robert Catsby.  "Our plan should be to blow up the house of lords"  So Roberts gang started making their sinister plot.  "Good plan!" shouted Guy Fawkes.  The date was March the 6th.  They would have to take 9 months to complete the plot.

So they got the materials such as 800kgs of gun powder.  Guy Fawkes was the man of explosives.

Every day Guy Fawkes put gun powder in the cellar under the House of Lords.  It took a long, long time buy Guy Fawkes did it.  "Hooray, hooray!" Roberts gang shouted.
